Rustic from China are GBOB 2009 World Champions

The Global Battle of the Bands 2009 World Final at the London Scala on April 27 featured national final winning bands from every corner of the globe. They came from Italy, Australia, Belgium, Japan, Norway, England, Kazakhstan, Israel, Montenegro, Ukraine, Romania, China, Netherlands, Scotland, Serbia, Nepal, Malaysia, Canada, Iceland and Germany to compete for the GBOB Best New Band in the World title.

But after an entertaining evening of truly fantastic performances it’s a shame that only one band could take the title – and that honour fell to flamboyant punk rockers  from Beijing in China (pictured). They were the unanimous first place choice of the judges just ahead of two Nordic contenders in the shape of Endless Dark from Iceland in second place and Explicit Licks from Norway in third. In fourth, fifth and sixth place respectively were Cousin Avi from England, Umlala from Israel and E.Quals from Nepal.
